If Malwarebytes is installed on the computer - or perhaps partially installed - and you do not currently need (or want) it, consider uninstalling it from Programs and Features.

 

Control Panel > icon view > Programs and Features

Search for the software in the list of installed programs.

If found, then click on the program and uninstall the software.

Wait a bit - after the software is removed, Restart the computer and log in.

 

If you want to keep Malwarebytes around but you want it to stop bugging your trip, switch off the notifications that the program sends (apparently constantly).

 

Adjust notification settings in Malwarebytes

 

OR

If the software is listed in your applications list, you can maybe kill it there:

Settings > Apps > Apps and Features

Search the list - find, click and uninstall

 

OR

Look for and stomp on the Windows Notifications settings

 

  • Notifications - Stop the Onslaught

 

Method - Switch off Notifications (Windows 10)

 

Settings > System > Notifications and actions >

Under Notifications, set the following to OFF

  • Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows
  • Get notifications from apps and other senders

 

Method - Switch off Selected Notifications (Windows 10)

 

Settings > System > Notifications and actions > 

Under Notifications 

Switch ON Get notifications from apps and other senders

Scroll down to the list of "apps" > switch on / off each application

 

Optional

Switch OFF Show me the Windows Welcome experience...

Switch OFF Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows
